I'm being lazy today so I am reposting the very first Flashback Friday dated April 1, 2011.
This is Sheriff Marvin showing how well he can play with four fingers. Either that or he's giving someone a four finger gang sign.
Me on my 97 Kawi 1500. Took this baby on 4 trips out of state in 2004. Damn good bike. We went to:
Trip 1: Boscobel Wisconsin which hosts a Kawasaki bike rally yearly every Father's Day weekend. Travelled with Stewart (Mecmo) Nyi and Pick Foster.
Trip 2: The Arches National Park in Moab, Utah, up to Wyoming, then home in the rain.
Trip 3: Trip to South Dakota: Deadwood and Mount Rushmore.
Trip 4: Eureka Springs, Arkansas to National Kawi Bike Rally.
A total of 7,000 miles in one summer. Only trouble was I needed to change a tire in Rapid City, South Dakota.
Me and Michael in Pat Johnson's pool in Knoxville. Old friend, (old signifying when I started work at MDH and not Pat's age) Pat Johnson took this pic.
Me trailing the little guy on his battery operated 4-wheeler.
A happy Michael. Happiest time in my life? Had to be when I met Michael and we played for a couple years in the old place on Chambers St. in Galesburg. Both kids were still home, work was good and life was stable. I can even remember my happiest weekend. July 4th weekend 2006: Brendan came home on leave and wore his dress uni to a car show in Kewanee. Michael rode home with me in Baby, stopped at DQ with everyone, then had cookout and fireworks at Chambers. A happy man with toys and a happy family.
Mark and Magic back in college days. Magic was a pretty cool dog and was one of three Boxers we had growing up, the first being Archie, then Magic, followed by Samantha.
